According to the Russian parliamentarian, Poroshenko can’t remember what this country prior to 1991 did not exist.
On 11 may the Council of Ministers of the European Union approved the decision to grant Ukrainians the right to visa-free entry to the territory of the countries — EU members for a period not exceeding 90 days within half a year. The signing of the document by the presidents of the European Parliament and of the Council scheduled for 17 may. It will come into force at the beginning of June.
Poroshenko, commenting on the decision, said that a visa-free regime Ukraine returns to “historical place in the European countries.” “Already the proud Ukrainian passport, and this is a very important achievement. Already no we will not mix with any country in the world, and I want to congratulate,” said he.
Ukraine became an independent state on 24 August 1991, after the collapse of the USSR.
